    You know you're living in 2004 when...

    1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

    2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

    3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

    4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

    5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that
    they don't have e-mail addresses.

    6. You go home after a long day at work you still answer the phone in
    business manner.

    7. You make phone calls from home, you accidentally dial "9" to get an
    outside line.

    8. You've sat at the same desk for four years and worked for three
    different companies.

    10. You learn about your redundancy on the 11 o'clock news.

    11. Your boss doesn't have the ability to do your job.

    12. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if
    anyone is home.

    13. Every commercial on television has a website at the bottom of the

    14. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the
    first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you
    turn around to go and get it.

    15. You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.

    16. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. :<)

    17. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

    18. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this

    19. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

    20. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this

    Im not exactly what you would call a morning person and I head straight for the kettle once my feet touch the floor.

    Well, my kettle boils quicker than Win XP loads :lol:, so I turn the PC on first, then turn the kettle on. By the time my morning cup of tea (no coffee in my house) is ready, so is my PC.

    I did too! :lol: :lol:

    I'd like to add one more: I constantly find myself trying to open my apt door with my office key and vice versa, even though the two keys are completely different in shape and size! Sometimes I don't even realize that I'm doing it, and would keep trying very hard to stick the too-big-office-key in my apt door!! :headwall:

    My keys are even worse since I also live in university owned graduate housing... as such I have almost identical keys for: my apartment, my anthropology office, the anthropology graduate "lounge," my writing program office, and the main writing program office... needless to say I sometime feel rather foolish standing outside one of those doors trying out keys just to get in... :oops:

    :oops: where I live, they have their own telephone system which I went with instead of one of the telephone companies, so I do still have to dial "9" :oops: :lol:

    Or they send you an email :roll: as one company here in the UK did, and then tried to back track after that DID make the news, saying that the email was just "dissemination of information" :roll:

    :nope: That was your idea :wink:

    I don't suppose putting them in 'alphabetical order' by room is an option :| :wink:

    My solution to near-identical keys: colour code them in different nail polish 8) !

    A bit girly, I know :oops: ......I don't even wear them on myself.....! They are in my paint box to make faux jewellery for theatrical costumes......

    You know you're living in 2004 when...
    You're paying close to your annual earnings in TAXES! :evil:

    The number 9, as is the number 4, are unlucky numbers in Japan. You could use that excuse for forgetting #9. 8)
